  • The Secret to leading a hybrid workforce: Habits to manage, motivate and engage Recorded: Jan 27 2021 38 mins

    “4 in 10 employees haven’t felt supported by their employer during the 2020 pandemic.” - Benenden Health Report

    People have always worked remotely. However, this was usually reserved for field or senior roles within an organisation. Since March 2020, all levels of an organisation have needed to work remotely, and managers have had to adjust, quickly.

    In this new year, we are learning from 2020. Everyone’s experience of working from home has been different – some have found their flow, heightened their productivity and achieved a healthier work-life balance. Others have struggled with the transition and are eager to get back into the office.
    Everyone is different when it comes to their attitudes to working from home and managers need to take the time to understand each employee’s own preferences in this new era of work.

    Each day at your workplace could look very different, with part of your team coming into the office some days, whilst others stay at home. So how do you manage these hybrid teams and ensure that your managers are still including those who are not necessarily there in person?

    Join Dave Morris and Rich Horton, Directors at Zentano, as they discuss how you can manage, motivate and engage your hybrid workforce.

    Dave Morris is Director of Zentano, an organisation that helps businesses to deliver sustainable change and create success through strong leadership and management.
    Rich Horton is Director, Coach, Facilitator and Mediator at Zentano. He follows his passion to support individuals, teams and businesses to develop and grow leadership capability using Zentano’s Connected Leadership ™ model.

    This webinar is for people managers, leadership and HR professionals tasked with ensuring people are managed effectively during times of change and remote working

    Key takeaways:
    • Top tips to manage your hybrid teams
    • Goals for remote leadership
    • Team dysfunctions and the importance of trust

  • Hoe help jij jouw medewerkers door de crisis heen? Recorded: Nov 16 2020 46 mins
    Carmen Amador Barreiro, Organisational and business psychologist & Annemarie van der Heijden, Trainer at Thomas Nederland
    Ga er lekker voor zitten en log in voor ons webinar uit de ‘Thomas Talks’ reeks: Emotionele Veerkracht. Dit webinar is reeds eerder gepresenteerd in het Engels maar nu dus ook de mogelijkheid om het Nederlandstalige webinar bij te wonen!

    Tijdens het webinar bespreken Carmen en Annemarie hoe managers hun teams het beste kunnen ondersteunen in een tijd van (gedeeltelijke) lockdown, uitdagende thuissituaties en in veel gevallen een economische terugslag.

    Emotionele veerkracht is de sleutel in deze tijd. Mensen met een aangeboren hogere emotionele intelligentie zullen meer een psychologische buffer van 'middelen' hebben om hen te helpen het hoofd te bieden, dan degenen zonder dit voordeel. Zij zullen het meest profiteren van gerichte steun van hun managers en werkgevers. Het rapport van de Trait Emotional Intelligence Questionnaire (TEIQue) geeft een duidelijk overzicht van de ontwikkelingsgebieden per eigenschap. Dit kan zeer waardevol zijn in deze tijden van onzekerheid evenals het onderzoeken van het gedrag onder druk met behulp van de Persoonlijke Profiel Analyse.

    Belangrijkste lessen die je uit dit webinar zult leren:

    - Hoe kun je het TEIQue rapport gebruiken om de meest effectieve - ondersteuningsstrategie per persoon te identificeren.

    - Welke eigenschappen zijn het meest waarschijnlijk geassocieerd met veerkracht - bijvoorbeeld optimisme, relaties, stressmanagement en aanpassingsvermogen.

    - Emotionele intelligentie en gedrag als indicatoren van veerkracht. Ontdek hoe je zowel TEIQue als PPA kunt gebruiken om aangepaste ondersteuningsplannen voor je medewerkers te maken.

    Dit webinar is interessant voor leidinggevenden, managers, HR-professionals, coaches en trainers.

    Graag stellen we Carmen aan je voor, een van onze jongste talenten van het Global Psychology Team.

    Annemarie van der Heijden is sinds juni 2017 Trainer Consultant bij Thomas Nederland.

  • An introduction to unconscious bias – from industry experts Recorded: Sep 17 2020 32 mins
    Marcelo Souza, Country Manager at Thomas Brazil and Graeme Doyle, Managing Director of The Logistics Partnership LLP
    79% of HR professionals believe that unconscious bias exists in recruitment and succession planning decisions.

    But what is unconscious bias?

    Unconscious biases are social stereotypes about certain groups of people that individuals form outside of their own conscious awareness. Types of unconscious bias include gender bias, confirmation bias and affinity bias. Unconscious bias has a role in almost every aspect of the modern workplace and if left unchecked, unconscious biases can lead to a loss of talent and innovation and it can breed a culture of discrimination in your workplace.

    Join Marcelo Souza and Graeme Doyle in the first of our series of short, 30-min webinars, where they will discuss the definition and types of unconscious bias, as well as providing the latest industry insights into the implications of leaving this unchecked. Graeme will provide expert insights into confirmation bias within recruitment and leadership.
